good tailbag for the money!
tail bag is a nice addition to the saddlebags I purchased earlier.....when I unzip the expansion zipper I can fit my helmet inside....and there are ALOT of pockets and storage space, hopefully I will be able to go on some trips and pack them to see actual space for storage.....should be good for what trips I will be taking

bought this bag for longer trips on my FJR. Not a huge fan of hard top cases so I tried this one.
Size is deceiving, when expanded it holds a ton of stuff.
Connection to the bike is simple, quick and easy with the mounting straps.
Rain cover works well, rode in the rain for 3 hours and my computer and clothes were dry as a bone.
Quality and finish is top notch, for the money it's well worth it!

Great bag, perfect for my need
This bag fit my needs perfectly. Very well constructed and proved itself on a two week trip through all types of weather!

Great bag at a good price
Basically a great bag. Good quality materials/construction and functional design, TONS of space compared to most other bags but still maintains a pretty aerodynamic low profile and it looks streamlined once its on. Keeps its shape when empty, which I like, and the straps are awesome, waaay better than bungee cords. My biggest complaint is that it has a soft bottom, which wouldn't be a big deal normally, but with a tail bag this size unless you have a very wide, flat tail section the sides of the bag (which extend a good few inches over the sides of my Monster 796) will pull over and down around the sides of your seat when you cinch it down, even when full, making it impossible to get a snug fit...unless you have it full of square plates the exact size and shape of the bag. You want a tight fit so it doesn't move around back there and to get it right I had to fabricate a little mounting deck out of an old lunch tray and that did the trick, but it was kind of a time consuming hassle. Not exactly plug and play, in my case at least. This could be solved easily by including an aluminum or plastic hard bottom plate sewn into the bag, but I suppose that would add significant cost, too. Anyway, now that I've got it dialed I have no complaints. Great bag.

Patrick L: I borrowed this tail bag from a friend for a four day ride. It worked so well that I ordered one for myself. The attachments are better on this updated model than the original ones. Easy on and off with soft ties to the bike and clips to the rings on the bag.Jul 11, 2014
Chris T: Seemed like a good bag, lots of room. Worked out well on my trip.Feb 11, 2014
A shopper asked:Is there quick connect buckles on this bag so I can get on and off w/o removing my seat?May 23, 2014
Scott P:I'm not sure I understand the question... but there is no quick and easy way to remove the bag really. It straps to some point on the frame of the bike, but I found the straps that come with it difficult to use (and not easy to quickly remove). I replaced them with some bungee cords and using that, I can install or remove the bag in about 10 seconds. Other than the straps, I really love the bag! It holds a ton, has the flaps on the sides to protect the paint on the bike from scratches from the straps, and has held up well so far.May 23, 2014
Eric F:I went to home depot and got box of Velcro reusable ties. Used 4 of them and just did a loop around the rear passenger hold rails and wala ------ easy on and easy off and fully secure! Velcro for the WIN!May 23, 2014
Wilbur N:It will handlle any full face helmet with room to spare without unzipping the 3" vertical expansion. Great design and price. Holds a lot of stuff for long trips when expanded. Love mine!! Revzilla also first class. Bill N

Wilbur N:Brian. The jumbo tail bag will easily hold any full face helmet with room to spare without using the 3" expansion. Fully expanded the bag holds a lot for long trips. Well made and great design'. Love mine. Revzilla excellent also. Mar 31, 2014
Chris T:Hard to say without seeing your set up. I had to build a mounting platform out of an old lunch tray to get it to fit my bike properly, but once it was on it performed beautifully. Just got back from a 4,000 mile ride and it went flawlessly. My view is that it's always possible, you just have to find a way to do it right/safely. One word of caution though, this is a very large bag, which I love about it, but stacked on top of a hard shell tour pack it's going to be sticking up like a totem pole on the back of your bike...good luck.Aug 30, 2013
Eric F:I found a simple way of just using basic Velcro straps (Home Depot/Lowes has multiple types) on the rings and secured that way. There are so many places to secure the bag on this bag. Hope that helps!Nov 4, 2013
